Zamiatin's anti-utopian novel "We" (1920) was acknowledged by George Orwell as one of the inspirations for his own "1984", and was banned in the USSR until 1988. Based on a unique typescript found in an American archive, this is the first scholarly edition of the text in the original Russian. The edition not only establishes for the first time the authentic text of "We", but is accompanied by extensive textual and scholarly analyses.
